The newspaper article says they will patrol from 32nd to 9th street. I guess we'll open the beers below Smelter. Sounds Good to me.
Now.. the tubers do litter and usually need saving from their own drunkeness about once a week. The problem comes when the Tourista's from Texas mix with the drunk Tubers from Durango. It does not make good business. I really dont think this is going to help at all. In fact, I see more confrontations coming. Going to be entertainment for sure. I am going to sit on the river bank with a beer and watch the topless chics go by..

I like the Jet Ski PFD the guy is wearing, really setting a good example.

I've never seen an NRS that looks like that-what kind of raft is it?

Oar out of the oarlock, oar rights installed backwards, inappropriate PFD for whitewater and hand placement on the oars like he's recovering from a near mishap on Class I - II water. What kind of boat is that he's trying to row? It says NRS on it but looks like a cross between a Cabela's fisherman's special and a shredder.

You'd think the outfitters helping sponsor this gig could've at least sent a guide down there to show them which end of the oar goes in the water.

The only thing that could make the photo more absurd would be if one of the guys in the boat behind him was raising a frosty one to the camera...

Here's hoping they use their authority wisely and don't just exacerbate the problem. Hopefully that's not the handle of a nightstick sticking up by his right side.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
